Sounds like everyone is gearing up for next year's conference...not sure if it has been mentioned or suggested, but why not a theme or partial theme about the RISING OF THE PHOENIX FROM THE ASHES..............seems this would tie in very well for raku potters, especially..........and in the city of Phoenix...etc..etc.......yep, my old marketing days are

peeking through....? :)??? It could work!? Had to laugh when I read the one about Kokopelli's privates!! LOL?

Little ole southern me,

Beth in Blue Ridge Mtns Foothills of VA.............spring has sprung.....perhaps Kokopelli too? lol
